How to Get Along with Peers

Updated on May 7, 2011


You are expected to:

1.Instill camaraderie among yourselves; 2.Enjoy training and get the most out of it; 3.Give your full cooperation and be involved in any team’s effort.


Before the start of any training, you should always bear in mind that friendly relations should exist among yourselves and your instructors so as to enjoy the training atmosphere and benefit from it. 

Cooperate in whatever purposeful undertaking but don’t lose identity in character and purpose.

• •Be frank but not abrupt or discourteous; •Correct politely but do not ridicule mistakes of others; •Do not be self-conceited or have too much belief on oneself; •Practice “pakikisama”; •Remember, “No man is an Island”.  This means you need other people to achieve your goal. •


  To get the most out of life, you must bring people into your life.  You must work with them.  Always be ready to lend a helping hand.  The happiness and personal satisfaction you will get from helping others is immeasurable.  It is something money can’t buy.

  Here are some “musts” which you should follow:

a)Be ready to teach others

  -  continue your opinions and talents to fellow trainees.

  -  share your work/good ideas with others.

b)Concern yourself with the welfare of others.

  -  be sensitive to the needs and feelings of others

  -  be concerned with the safety of your fellow trainees.


There are six rules on how to win friends:

Rule 1 – Be genuinely interested in other people

Rule 2 – Always manage to smile when you are with other people

Rule 3 – Remember that to a person, his name is the sweetest and most important sound in any language.  Learn to address your fellow trainees by their first names.

Rule 4 – Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves.

Rule 5 – Talk in terms of other trainees’ interests.

Rule 6 – Make the other person feel important and do it sincerely.


The success of any undertaking depends upon the attitudes of the people involved in it, how effective they are individually and as a team. An effective work team must possess the following characteristics:

a) A work team should be free from emotional tensions. b)Members should be genuinely involved and interested in the team’s effort. c)Every member should participate. d) Each one should show no signs of boredom.

e) There should be free discussion of issues but stick strictly to subject matter.

f) When action is taken and work assignments are made, members should accept their responsibilities.

g) No one should be allowed to dominate the group. Leadership should shift from time to time.
